DHL offers online airfreight quotes

30 / 11 / 2017

Deutsche Post’s DHL Global Forwarding arm has introduced an online quotation and booking service for international airfreight, based on door-to-door all-in rates and transit information. 

It connects to the DHL Interactive customer portal, where it also provides shipment tracking and customised shipment reports. 

The service is available in over 40 countries — including the main European Union member states, US, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam — covering most key lanes and point pairs said DHL.

It allows shippers and consignees to quote and book shipments for all commonly used pre-paid and collect trade terms from a computer or mobile device. 

Global head of marketing and sales Angelos Orfanos explained: “International shipping doesn’t need to be a complex task. From searching for the right supplier through to getting a competitive price, this should be easily available online.”

The service provides an immediate price for general cargo airfreight shipments of up to 2,000 kilos and offers two speeds of service through DHL’s Air Connect and Air Economy products. 

The quote is based on the pick-up and delivery location plus shipment details including weight and dimensions. The door-to-door all-in rate can also include import and export customs as well.

The service can be found online at www.freightquote.dhl.com.
